Telegraph: "Spirit Of Adventure: Behind The Rise Of The Somali Pirates"

Discussion in 'Current Affairs' started by soleil, Feb 2, 2011.

Welcome to the Navy Net aka Rum Ration

The UK's largest and busiest UNofficial RN website.

The heart of the site is the forum area, including:

  1. "It has even been reported that one of the pirates who held a British couple, Paul and Rachel Chandler, for 388 days has a family in England and intends joining them here as an asylum-seeker."

    That bit made me chuckle.

    Seems the way to go according to the article however is to travel only onboard Russian vessels. Makes you wonder if there is ever going to be any significant way of making progress against Piracy

  3. I must confess that the thought of Scouse Castaway and his merry band suddenly materialising next to a boat full of pirate miscreants has made me smile this evening. Talk about an element of surprise!
     
  4. Lets hope he takes Klaus the Krappin Kraut with him !
